Once a coveted free agent acquisition for the New York Jets, Trumaine Johnson is now a free agent at 30-years-old in the middle of August. After signing a five-year, $72.5 million contract with the New York Jets in 2018, he would only play for them for two seasons before being cut this offseason.
Now that he is back on the market, the Cleveland Browns could likely get him for a lot cheaper. Standing at 6-foot-2, along with being listed at 215 pounds, Johnson is an interesting prospect for the Browns to consider. He could come in and play cornerback until Williams gets back and try to transition back to free safety. Johnson is less versatile than the previously mentioned Logan Ryan, but he has better size to play free safety.
Johnson wouldn’t be my preferred choice on this list, as Ryan is. However, he would likely be a lot cheaper to sign than Ryan. Johnson has made his money in the NFL, as OverTheCap.com lists his career earnings at $68,482,576. If Johnson still wants to play football, and maybe even transition positions to try to further stretch out his career, the Cleveland Browns would be his best spot to do so.
